    Microsoft in October is introducing .Net Framework Monthly Rollup to provide security and quality updates to its programming model for Windows. The move aligns with the Windows Monthly Rollup, which does the same thing for the Windows OS.

    Both rollups were unveiled on Monday and will be available on Patch Tuesday each month, according to Microsoft.

    "The .Net Framework Monthly Rollup is a single install that updates each supported .Net Framework version on a machine to its latest respective update level," said Microsoft's Stacey Haffner.

The rollup installs only security and reliability updates, not a new version of .Net Framework.
